. the violence increes fears of fullout israeli ground assault. we'll have much more with ambassador john bolton a little later in the show. gregg: and president obama is heading to new york city today to tour the most sandy-ravaged areas. the president expected to meet with affected families and first-responders. molly henneberg live at the white house with more on that. molly, what is the message behind the president's visit? >> reporter: hi, gregg. president obama has been saying that the federal government is making a difference in the storm response in new york and new jersey. this is his second visit to see sandy-ravaged areas. you may remember on october 31st he went to see new jersey. today he is going to parts of new york city. he will talk to people there, talk to first-responders. here's what the president said yesterday about his administration's response to superstorm sandy. >> people are still going through a really tough time. the response hasn't been perfect but it's been aggressive and strong and fast and robust and a lot of people have been helped because of it. >> reporter: be
. i'm joined by john bolton. former ambassador to the u.n. and a fox news contributor. what do you think about that. >> when i first heard that story i thought i must be reading something from the onion, or mad magazine, and to be honest i still don't believe it. i don't believe even the obama administration would send valerie jarrett to negotiate with the iranians. not that i put it past them, i just find it very hard to believe. martha: apparently she was born in iran to american parents, her father worked in a hospital there. could that be a reason to, you know, sort of think that she might be a person that would be able to sort of bridge a relationship there, or at least in a very initial kind of informal way start to have some discussions or make arrangements for further, higher level discussions? >> well, my understanding is she left when she was five. unless she is a very precocious lady i don't think her experiences between age zero and age five qualify her to negotiate with the iranians. moreover, it is presidential malpractice to put what by all accounts is one of the pre
. joining us john bolton, former u.s. ambassador to the u.n. and fox news contributor. ambassador, nice to see you again. >> good morning. glad to be with you, jenna. jenna: let's talk about when hillary clinton and leon panetta had to say. based on your experience, ambassador, overall what are the effects of personal scandal in international relations? is there any sort of fallout we should be watching? >> i think there can be fallout but at this point i think it would be premature to jump to any conclusions because the circumstances we're talking about are not full le known. i think one of the reasons that secretary panetta in particular has been at pains to say that general allen still has his confidence even though his nomination to head up the european command has been put on hold is because he is still in theater in afghanistan. i think general petraeus's problems are a little bit more remote although they could have an impact depending on what else comes out about perhaps breaches of security of documents and things given to the lady the general is having his affair with. jenna:
and administration would john bolton. we have seen it in a couple of cases in the obama administration where nominee for a high government post was held up for a long time. it all depends in the end on whether kelly ayotte gets any allies from her fellow republicans on this, because the way you could overcome her individual opposition is to get about five republicans that the democrats would need to break any filibuster that she might muster. i suspect, based on what i've seen of the evidence, what she was referring to in the statement, that it probably will not be a big problem for susan rice nonalignment. frankly, ayotte is way out on a limb on this. it is interesting that john mccain and lindsey graham, much more experienced senators, continue their opposition. but ayotte says she will hold up any nominee. host: what to you mean that she's way out there? guest: there's no one else making statements that there are so many unanswered questions that this is a sort of national scandal that must be resolved before we can even have a secretary of state to succeed hillary clinton. i think that unless th
